It includes a Help section .


How do I cite this resource?

What is the survey sequence contig nomenclature?


>IWGSC_chr3B_ab_k71_contigs_longerthan_200:10567088 3505 62189 4936946+,...,988109+

The nomenclature of the contigs is the standard output from the ABySS assembler.

The contig id comes first (10567088), then the contig length (3505), then the absolute k-mer coverage (62189). These three columns will exist for all contigs. In addition, paired-end contigs (scaffolds) have a fourth column which shows the list of contigs that comprise the scaffold. In the example, contig 10567088 is comprised of contig 4936946 and contig 988109, both in the same direction (+)
